Favorite Flourless Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Everly’s kindergarten snack day was this week at school. We are gluten free so snacks always take some advance planning. Her class knows she is gluten free but we understand that not everyone will remember or care about her not being able to eat glutenous snacks… so I do my best to find her delicious gluten free alternatives that don’t seem like anything less than what other kids are enjoying. You know, so that she’s not feeling left our like she’s getting the short end of the deal.

This recipe is a wonderful example of how gluten free doesn’t always mean going without. It’s so good and it’s flourless so no gluten worries.

I even use this recipe as a base for my lactation cookie enjoyment (cookies to support and enhance lactation for breastfeeding moms) Do take care to buy gluten free oats if your goal is to make these gluten free. And seriously, double or triple this recipe so you’ll have cookies for a few days these go fast.

  1. This does sound yummy, but I’m actually very surprised you are allowed to send in peanut containing snacks to school. Peanut allergies can be one of the most severe out there and as a mom of 2 peanut/treenut allergic kids plus being married to a peanut allergic husband I urge you to ask the teacher if there are any peanut allergies in your classroom and if so to make the choice not to send in a snack containing something that is life threatening to another child. You already understand the tough choices those with restricted diets must make with Everly needing to be gluten free and I do empathize with the difficulty in pleasing and making sure your littles fit in.
    However this does look delicious and I’m definitely giving it to one of my girlfriends to make in her kitchen for me since we maintain a peanut free house for the safety of those who are allergic.

    1. Elana,

      I hope your girlfriend enjoys it! Everly’s classroom is peanut allergy free this year and since we have such a small school/ county they aren’t as strict about snack limitations. I’m so thankful we don’t have a peanut allergy in our home. Food limitations are so hard.
